Kennard’s talk was entitled ‘Examining Global Emerging Trends and Concepts Across the

Sharing expert insights

While this was the company’s first speaking engagement of 2020, it had a busy year in 2019, with team members speaking at a wide range of industry events and expos. These included IAAPA Expo Europe in Paris, IAAPA IAM in Singapore, MAPIC in Cannes, the Family Attractions Expo in the UK, and IAAPA Expo Orlando, among others.

LDP also has several speaking engagements at industry conferences and expos lined up for this year, for example, MIPIM in Cannes in March, IAAPA Expo Asia in June and IAAPA IAM in the summer. LDP feels it is important to actively participate in the attractions’ industry on all levels, not just as market leaders in feasibility and leisure economics.

“The nature of LDPs work means we look to the future of the attractions’ industry, often spotting trends before they become mainstream,” said Frea Nunn, Team & Marketing Coordinator. “We strongly feel that leading companies within the attractions’ industry sharing knowledge at events and expos are of high value to the industry. We will continue to participate at events for as long as the invitations to speak keep coming!”
